Go Tell Your Mama - It's Obama! (campaign signs in a post election world)

Wow! There were so many times in the past eight years that I thought a positive change to the national political scene was going to be impossible without a total breakdown of the system, a complete dismantling and even civic revolution. Last night, watching a new, young, charismatic leader accept the Presidency Elect of our country I was (thankfully) proved wrong.

Barack Obama and his brilliant campaign team have, I believe, changed the election process for the future of America. After years of crying about "how do we get young people and the disenfranchised back into the voting both?" this one visionary, and an army of politically hungry volunteers, has catalyzed the process and begun enfranchising those disenfranchised voters, of empowering the disempowered youth.

Don't be mistaken - we are not there yet. Those of us who have cared enough to become involved in this fight must not lull ourselves into thinking everything is fixed. EVERYTHING will never be fixed. But the essential elements to make our Democracy WORK have been fixed! And that, my friend, is VERY good news.

One more thing - to the volunteers and fans who went out onto the street, into the community, and planted yard signs all over greater Albuquerque: Thank you and now go clean up that mess! It's our responsibility to head back out on the street and pick up those signs. And, while you are at it - take a step for a New America and turn that plastic sign bag over and fill it up with the litter that you see on the roadside surrounding your sign. Make that first step into our future and clean up the earth one roadside lot at a time.

Goddess Bless

Regarding the photograph - Some people are strangers to critical thought. They just "don't get it". Oh Well.
